Singapore is one of the few cities around the world that rose to fame within a short span of time. Ever since it gained independence from Malaysia in 1965, the tiny city-state has gone from a port city to one of the world’s most gorgeous and technocratic cities.
The skyline is dominated by high-rise condos, office spaces, and luxury hotels. Singapore is popular across the planet when it comes to shopping because it caters to both ends of the economy. Street bazaars and markets offer the best of gadgets, clothes, and designer goods. While on the on the other end, you can find the most elite designer wear and fashion which often cost a bomb. Pair that with some super cool cafes and fine dine restaurants, that’s how most people spend their days in Singapore.
A sharp contrast to the uber and chic Singapore is its subdued avatar. Little spaces where temples exist in peace alongside shopping malls, little lanes that will take you back to Mumbai with those bright colours and street stalls, small stalls selling colonial era coffees, or traditional Chinese medicines.
Now, that’s what a great city is all about; it offers a little bit of everything for everyone. That’s why people return to this city-state every few years. There is truly something unique about Singapore.
